Island East Tour

 

Orwell Corner store

 

Come join us for our tour as we visit the South-Eastern end of our Island. We begin with a brief tour of Historic Charlottetown. Then, we head out across the Hillsborough Bridge to the Historic Village of Orwell Corner, which is a working village that is based what it was like on the Island in the early settler days.  From there, we have a coastal drive until we reach Wood Islands Ferry terminal. This is one of the connections we have to the Mainland.  Here you will see some of the red cliffs that our Island is famous for. We will visit the craft shop located in the lighthouse that features many Island-made pieces for you to treasure. Next is Rossignol Winery, located in White Sands, where you can sample a taste of their world class wines. We then visit the  small eastern village of Murray River. Our stop here is at the local fishing and swimming at MacLure’s damn where the young and old come enjoy a dip on hot summer day.  The stunning views are natures beauty is at its best! We continue on to one of the Island’s best beaches, Panmure Island, where we will visit the light house. The view from the top of the lighthouse is absolutely breathtaking. You can also say hello to the huge draft horses that are pastured in the field next to the light house.  We head off passing through many quaint coves and the quiet countryside to the largest town on PEI. Montague is the hub of Kings County. It was a big part of the shipping and receiving for 100+ years. In the past, Schooners came up the river and deliver goods to the docks, which were then distributed to what was known as the Three Rivers area. Montague boasts a beautiful, newly-updated waterfront marina and has many sculptures throughout the town for everyone to enjoy.  This is also my home town! On our way back to Charlottetown, you can enjoy a relaxing drive through the peaceful countryside where you will pass by the farms that many Islanders earn their living at.
